, but you are engaging with countries for whom doing that is much simplerlike china, like russia, the state capital company where, you know, your company is your arm not only of foreign economic policy, but of foreign policy full stop. how do you operate in a world with players who are operating under these very different rules? >> well, it's something we do spend quite a bit of time thinking about this. it's not all about china. there are issues with other countries like -- >> russia? >> -- like russia, but not just those two. and the lines are really blurred in terms of where the state ends and where capital and corporate interests begin for many countries. at the state department, we've really tried to create mechanisms through multilateral institutions like the oecd has come up with a platform for competitive neutrality which looks at the different ways that governments can act to subsidize or to give favor to their own state-owned or state-led interests and provide some recommendations for engaging in a platform of competitive neutrality. it's a different way of thinking about the chal

american. my parents fled the holocaust and the czars of russia. we all looked at ourselves as people who needed to understand that we represented struggle in europe and that, as we would see a struggle in america, we would want to identify ourselves with that struggle. so african-americans became a natural brothers in struggle. it was natural to see the struggle for dignity for black people in america as a sister struggle of the jewish struggle. growing up, it was always a part of my breakfast cereal to think of myself as someone who is part of a larger struggle. as i grew up, i had a lot of friends in the african-american community and people close to my family, and one in particular who is in the film. i watched as those young people that i was growing up alongside -- they did not encounter the same possibilities that i did, the same opportunities. we all thought it was the wake of the civil rights movement, i grew up in the early 1970's. it was in the year that it would be a new time for black people and that it would be a great time where the promise will finally be fulfilled. sure,
francisco today. we bought naval forces from the united states, from russia and japan all to honolulu where we had simulated a tsunami disaster. and these three great nations brought their fleets to honolulu exercising how to respond and alleviate that disaster. well, that was then. how about now? last year the united states released a new security strategy. most of you probably have not even heard of that, but i have to tell you this was a big deal. it was one of the fifth american security strategies that we have issued since the civil war. among the highlights of that security strategy was a strong statement that the united states had the highest economic and security interests in the asia pacific region. not in europe as has been for 100 years prior to that, than the asia pacific region. secondly, that we would maintain freedom of access throughout that region. in particular, we would maintain the sea lanes in that area, whatever the challenge might be. even as we reduce our defense budget, therefore we must maintain and would
to russia to die. when the germans surrendered and the japanese were pushed back to their home islandislands, the american propensity to safety or human life while wasting cheap bullets and bombs reached with the dropping of the two atomic bombs. virtually all of the relevant evidence, recent evidence for both american and japanese sources validates president harry truman's decision to drop both bombs. japanese leaders did not display the slightest acknowledgment of the military realities, illustrated by the report of dr. machine off, japan's top atomic scientist who was sent to hiroshima the following day and had to report back to the emperor and he was asked was this an atomic bomb? then came the line, how long until we can make one? that is hardly the response of somebody looking for a way to surrender. truman intended to show japan that he would use any weapons at our disposal. there was no atomic diplomacy. he wanted to show the japanese that it was surrender or die. which surrender came to temporary victory in the principles of american exceptionalism worldwide. unlike all the previous
area of the world in which most of threats and challenges. it's not a rising china. it's not a russia seeking to regain its power and stature. real threat to american interests seems to be coming from a broken and dysfunctional middle east in which we're stuck and his problem. and had mitt romney become president as well, middle east is divided into migraines on one hand and root canal operations on the other. there are not a lot of opportunities for solutions. >> gregg: pick your poison. you are right. let's talk specifics. let's talk about iran first. you believe that the president should explore and exhaust diplomacy before you are taking military action. you are very specific. let's put this on the screen. you write this, start with an interim arrange. that deals with the issue of enrichment and forestalls resign to acquire highly enriched uranium to construct a nuke. how can you convinces them to do that? >> the problem is once a society gets to enrich uranium and a assemble a nuclear weapon. how do you forestall it? you can't bomb it out of existence. unless you can change the r
't understand about russia, so many spots england. his lack of foreign affairs reality, and the expectation that he would be in charge did hurt him. there are so many things that hurt him. he had gigantic crowds in the end, but it looked like the republican convention. it was just all white people. and he thought with those big crowds, he thought he was going to win. tom brokaw said, i think it's going to be a good day for mitt romney. the american public saw through the lies and saw that mitt romney didn't have a psychic anchor at hunter thompson used to talk about. it was life blazing saddles we're so smart and they're so dumb. they're falling for it. and i'm going to be able to pull this etch-a-sketch on them, and he was wrong. the american people were so much smarter than all of those advertisements. what had he done to become the republican nominee? you look at how rick perry handled himself, newt gringrich all of them. he didn't beat any men of stature. it was embarrassing to watch. >> cenk: yes yes, no question it was a weak division. we got to leave it right there. when we come back
up to fight the soviet union. i asked my teenage daughter, what is wrong with russia? what is the soviet union? it was a big thing in the late 80s and >> host:s. we were geared up to fight them and most of us had never considered iraq or saddam hussein. after that war was over which winning was a foregone conclusion. the terrorism thing to pass all by surprise. we just thought they were rabble rouser is. never gave the much credit. interestingly all the buildings were built by the bin laden construction co. and had bin laden stamps. how's that for irony? but after that, things change, you had the world trade center bombings and then september 11th, we all know what happened that day. i was actually flying that morning, we come back from the middle east, from another rotation and monday, september 10th was our first day back and the morning of september 11th i was flying and i would come down very, very early and someone said look at this, and i remember thinking as i looked at the first tower, what kind of a more of a pilot could hit a tower that size on a clear day? i thou
. >> right. >> we should worry as a country when we are a punch line for russia. when russia looks at our democracy and says, wow, that's inefficient, wow, that has a lot of flaws. we're supposed to be the best. we were the best in 1776. we've got to update. >> part of that updating means now we all -- all have computerized databases statewide. >> right. that was part of the help america vote mandate act. >> that is right y. is it if you move from one county to another, if you don't reregister you're not in the system. >> it drives me nuts. it's like everybody in my world, like my friends, the post office, bill collectors. >> they can find you. >> magazine subscribers, they all know where i am. how does the voting system not. >> be very clear. we as an association have a 50 state database of every voter. >> you can purchase access to that. >> the same database that the folks who send you those catalogs use. >> exactly. >> so the federal government can use it and fix it like that. >> that's right. but the federal government won't. >> explain to us. >> because our infrastructure is based on
, yeah. >> i mean, not like russia, the soviet union -- >> oh, it's -- >> not that blanket -- >> entirely different. it's most of the time the areas the government cares about, the internet, democratic protest or whatever, taiwan, tibet, they're all over. when it doesn't involve that, you know, you can basically do what you want. you start a business, et cetera. so we want them to allow their people to have more a sort of liberal, normal life, as times goes on, which i -- and the government it's a country becoming more confident with a government that's still sort of nervous antique. it's a dick cheney government with, if not a barack obama, an fdr type nation behind it. here's an illustration. before the olympics, the foreign ministry said, "we're going to have an authorized protest zone so that everybody can say," you know, the beijing olympics, four years ago, "we're going to show the world we can tolerate protest." when people applied to protest, they were all arrested. so there's parts of the government that say, "this would look good, to allow a protest." there's parts that say, "we
at the consequences for russia, this is not just a regional question. it is about a relationship with another superpower with the u.n. we are very comfortable acting with this, but yet we find people saying that maybe obama should do this for a different reason. so i think it is a really big problem for the administration. it is not tied to the election. it is not even a political type of election. >> let me also say that i agree 100%. don't get me wrong. i don't think that us going in and invading is going to change perceptions. i agree. either way, there will be these perceptions. along with positive it images in the west. helping syria is by no means going to change the perceptions that we have some countries because of some countries versus others. >> i think there is a growing trend inside of washington in favor of intervention. some kind of increased action. i see no such trend in the country in public opinion. i just don't see any real support for it. the bottom line is this is horrible, but the american military intervention there would make things astronomically worse for syria and f
at the consequences for russia, i mean, this is not just a regional question. it is about the relationship with another superpower with the u.n.. really, you know, it's interesting. i'm sure that a good percentage of the people here, when bush acted to go to war in iraq, were very uncomfortable acting, and, yesterday, we find people now saying maybe obama should do it for a different reason so i think it's a really big problem for the administration. it's not due to the electionment eng the election is not going to solve that problem for them. it's not a political -- >> actually -- >> a cautious approach -- >> exactly. >> i agree 100%, don't get me wrong. i don't think we could win; right? us invading is going to change perceptions, i agree, but either way, there's going to be these perceptions along with the perceptions of the positive images of the west. us helping syria is by no means going to change the perceptions that we helped some countries because of resources versus others. i agree with that 1 # 00%. >> i think there is a growing trends inside of washington in favor of some inter
